Some things are constant. The harmony of the
bells, a gray silhouette through winter trees, the
strength and grace of enduring stone — these are
elements of Oglethorpe that are timeless. These
form the thread that unites the past and the
A flower is also a timeless thing, and spring,
although it passes quickly, has its place in the
permanence of the seasons. At Oglethorpe, spring
comes with the first dafi'odil, a branch of dog-
wood, and then the glory of everything in full
The changelessness of nature at Oglethorpe is
also reflected in the stillness of Lake Pheobe. We
see it in the woods that line its shores, the tran-
quility of a solitary boat, and in the placid sur-
face of the water as it mirrors an ageless sky.

The granite buildings modeled after England's
Oxford, are Oglethorpe's most tangible perma-
nence. Their beauty, solidarity, and strength
symbolize an ideal that has already lasted more
than a century.
tt^ «^ ,>** t*:*!-
Not all permanence at Oglethorpe is tangible,
however. Were it not for the dynamic leader-
ship and determination of Dr. Samuel K. Tal-
mage and Dr. Thornwell Jacobs the realization
of Oglethorpe would never have been met. What
we know as Oglethorpe dates from 1913, but
Oglethorpe University actually began in 1835.
Our past history is an ever present reminder of
the Oglethorpe tradition and proud heritage
that has been left to us.
Oglethorpe has come a long way, through
Civil War, Reconstruction, and financial hard-
ship. Still it has retained from the past the per-
manences of its ideal. In order to assure these
in the future, growth must be and is one of the
most vital permanences at Oglethorpe. Change
is everywhere as the Oglethorpe of today
stretches to reach the heights of tomorrow.
Yes, like the city of Atlanta Oglethorpe has
and continues to change and grow, for
"Yesterday is but today's memory, and to-
morrow is today's dream ..."
Today is life and vibrancy; change is in the
air and there is an aura of excitement. Inevi-
tably, turmoil comes with rapid growth. But
today Oglethorpe, as well as each individual
student, has been given the opportunity to con-
vert her dreams into realities.
Yet amid this dynamic background the
everyday things continue to be much as they
were yesterday and as they will be tomorrow.
Students still rush to classes, learn, argue, en-
joy the world outside four walls, and fall in love.

As the seasons pass, the faces of Oglethorpe
change, each bringing a special beauty all its
own. The bright vitality of autumn, the grey-
ness of a winter that only occasionally sparkles
in white, the budding green and warmth of a
long-awaited spring . .
As they stand in the shadows of night and
day, our campus buildings, in their Gothic tra-
dition of solidity and strength, are a tangible
symbol of the Oglethorpe Ideal. As we stroll in
these shadows, muse on these steps, or pause
to gaze at the softly illumined tower on a misty
night, we are part of this Ideal.
Today is people — people playing cards, chat-
ting between classes, waiting in the cafeteria
lines, cheering at games. These things and
many more we will remember, and know that
among the richest rewards of our Oglethorpe
years were our friendships.

As today's year progresses, beginnings grow
to involvements, and students become ab-

flow of activities. Nearly everyone at Ogle-

Perhaps most of all, today is learning: the
long hours of study in the library, the cram-
ming, the frustrated yet determined grappling
for facts. To be moved by a poem, struck by
the logic of an equation, wonder at a past era,
discover a truth — this is w hv we came.
Reflections are glimpses into the past, each
thought bringing the shadow of yesterday clos-

Man is above all things a man. Possessing
unique characteristics which distinguish him
from all other creatures, he is able to enhance
his cultural environment. Of particular import
are his artistic, literary, and architectural tal-
ents. The Division of Humanities emphasizes
man's essential humanness and seeks to devel-
ope these human qualities. Through the study of
Art, English, Foreign Languages, Literature,
and Philosophy, each student may fulfil his im-
portant place among his fellow men.

Philosophy is a human activity whose hall-
mark is the search for generality. It differs from
the Sciences in that it is not an attempt to de-
scribe some specific subject area in empirically
verifiable terms, but rather the attempt to in-
quire into the grounds of justification of scientif-
ic methodology in general.

in Fall Activities
As fall comes to the Oglethorpe campus, stu-
dents find themselves occupied with all the ac-
tivities necessary to starting another school
year. Excitement fills the air as one finds him-
self running here and there, going to new classes,
attempting to find that all-impossible parking
place, older students befriending new ones, re-
ceiving that first letter from home, or spend-
ing a quiet moment of solitude or loneliness —
All of this is part of orientation at Oglethorpe.

Wondering Rats, distinguished among other
humans by rat hats and ridiculousness, await an
entire week of "special attention"' rendered by
upperclassmen. Rats are lowly creatures who
answer any and all demands, from. "Tell where
the O.C. swimming pool is to be found. "" to.
"Hey Rat! Climb that treel" Though the rats
seem to stand alone at the beginning of the
week, by the end no such situation will exist.
Informal Dances Give
Break from Studying
As students begin to get down to serious
studying the social committee makes sure that
they also get down to some serious fun at their fall
dances on weekends. Held on campus, at the
B & B Ranch, or the American Legion with
bands pouring forth their favorite music, the
students indeed find the much needed relaxa-
tion and fun.
Witches and Goblins
Haunt O.C. Auditorium
Ghost Story Readings are a traditional part
of the witching season at Oglethorpe. Under
the sponsorship of the Players, faculty and
students are invited to participate in reading
spooky stories on Halloween Eve. The audi-
torium becomes the home of ghosts and goblins,
terrorizing all who enter with their haunting
screams and grumblings.
Players Begin Year
with Medieval Plays
The Players, an integral part of the force which
provides entertainment for the Oglethorpe cam-
pus, started their season with two Medieval
plays in the fall. "Everyman," a morality play,
delighted the audiences with its sincere message
to mankind, while "Johan, Johan,"" a bawdy
comedy, humored them with its winning slap-
Play and Movie Close
the Successful Season
The Players finished up their season with
another play, "The Silver Cord," and one of
their excellent movies. The play charmed the
audiences with its peculiar situation and wit.
The movie, using the talents of many students,
rates as one of the finest achievements of the

Fills The O.C. Campus
Like the first winter snow the traditional
Boar's Head Ceremony was held at the begin-
ning of the Christmas Season. It was the occa-
sion for the initiation of the new members of
the Boars Head Honorary Fraternity for 1967.
The program included a presentation of the
new members, carols sung by the chorus, read-
ings of Christmas Literature, and placing the
boar's head before the yule log.

FINE ARTS SERIES
Lecturers, Films, and
Talent Are Presented
The Fine Arts Committee brought a unique
group of artists including Turner Cassidy,
Van K. Brock, Lawrence Allaway, and Jonas
Mekas to the Oglethorpe Campus this year.
Such programs made the audiences more aware
and appreciative of modern art forms. In ad-
dition to these informative presentations the
fine Arts Committee recognized Student talent
to complete this stimulating series.
Fine Arts Awards
Varieties Highlight Spring
As the Second trimester begins. Students find
new entertainment an enjoyable break from
studies. This year Spring Varieties proved to be
a fine expression of the talent on campus. Con-
certs by the Lettermen, the Tarns, and the
Shirelles livened the spirits of all who attended
these two pleasureable evenings.
BLACK AND WHITE
Frosh Entertain with
The Black and White is sponsored annually
by the freshman class. They have projects such
as car washes, candy sales, and slave sales to
make the necessary money for the dance. This
year the students were entertained at the
American Motor Hotel where music was sup-
plied by Doctor Feelgood and the Interns.
Spring Formal Brings
the Year to a Close
The Spring Formal is the last dance for Ogle-
thorpe Seniors before they graduate. This
year they enjoyed themselves at the Marriott,
decorated with red and black daisies, and
music provided by Jimmy Fuller and his Or-
chestra. The dancing and gaity of the evening
lasted far into the night and will be a lasting
memory to Oglethorpe's 1967 graduates.
Commencement — an End
and a New Beginning
Graduation 1967 brought to a climax a long
and arduous struggle for those seniors in the
graduating class. But as is oftimes stated it
was also a Commencement. This year the
Commencement speech was delivered by the
new President of Oglethorpe College, Dr. Paul
June 4, 1967 will long stand out in the minds
of the graduates who received their diplomas
and capes for as they look back on their lives

Oglethorpe was fortunate this year to have
had Bill Weber elected at the annual meeting
to represent the Georgia colleges and univer-
sities and to coordinate their work during this
year. His fine talents have served S.U.S.G.A.
well and given our college prestige.

^ Religious Life
Baptist Student Union
As our College Community began to grow
several years ago and a greater percentage
began to live on campus a\va_\- from their home
congregations many desired local religious af-
filiation. As a result of this need three church
affiliated student groups have renewed their
old charters with the Student Government.
The Baptist Student Union was the group to
renew its charter last year. This year both
the Canterbury Association, for Episcopal
students, and the Newman Club, for Roman
Catholic students, renewed their charters. The
next step as outlined by Dr. Nishimuri. who
serves as the College chaplain, is the revival of
the Interfaith Council which would try to in-
tegrate the efforts of these groups.

champs, and the Sigs, runners-up in basketball last season
to the now-extinct Tigers, each snatching the crown from
the one in the favorite's role. The Junior Raiders, highly
favored to regain the football crown which they won as
sophomores, were upset in the first round of the play-offs
for their first loss ever, and the powerful Sigs went on
to cap the crown. In basketball, the Sigs got off to a
great start; the Raiders started slow, but came on strong
to edge the Sigs in the playoffs.

The Petrels were at a height disadvantage all
year, but their desire to win was unequalled, and
they were an exciting team to watch, as proved
by the opening game against Shorter, the Ar-
kansas State battle, and the Georgetown victory
in the Christmas Tourney.
Doug Alexander led the team in scoring with
15 points a game, with Jim Hoggarth and Roger
Littell not far behind. Alexander, in the last
game of the season, set two records in pumping
in 43 points against Chattanooga.
The Petrels played such powers as Providence,
with its AU-American Jim Walker, Murray
State's Thoroughbreds, and Valdosta State's
Next year the schedule should be even tougher
with N.Y.U. and Southern Illinois included, but
with the entire team returning, we are looking
forward to an even better season.

Another Successful Year
The Rifle and Pistol teams experienced diffi-

dorms interfered with the rifle range. As a re-

the rifle range at River Bend only when they
could. No competition was scheduled this year
due to these difficulties, but the teams are look-
ing forward to next year to continue their fine
reputation in shooting matches.

At Oglethorpe tradition is a way of life. And we are proud of
those people who over the past years have unselfishly rendered
a portion of themselves to the growth and development of the stu-
dents and the perpetuation of the Oglethorpe Ideal. It is the honor of
the 1967 Yamacraw to recognize two such individuals this year.
Therefore we dedicate this yearbook to a living tradition — the Mac-
Connell tradition at Oglethorpe, Mrs. Majorie M. MacConnell and

efforts. This year the award was presented to
Mr. Stuart Carl Levenson.
